Need Some Buckin' Up :-(

Recommended Posts

I gave up coffee for some time before I could have it in small quantity. Some people have their guts very damaged so they become very sensitive. Coffee may irritate your gut, as spices or vinegar do. Try not to drink coffee for a while, or take it with lactose-free milk if you can (just one small cup). :)

i have had the same problem with coffee- the dizziness, etc could be from the caffeine. i was drinking regular coffee in the mornings because i was so exhausted all the time. now that the exhaustion has diminished eating gluten-free, i switched to decaf. i just like the taste of coffee and it has become part of my morning ritual. switching to decaf doesn't make me have to go to the bathroom like the regular does!

I wondered if the very sensitive people to small amounts of gluten could list a few products that they know are safe and thye have no problem with . Like I am wondering what brand of baking cocoa people use, or brands of cookies etc that you know are safe. I am to the point of being scared to try new things.

Hershey's cocoa power (baking cocoa) is safe for me at least. I make my own (drinking) cocoa using coconut milk. Cookies we bake ourselves mostly, but the few we buy are from Pamela's.

I have not been able to drink tea or coffee it just seems to really make my stomach hurts and burns. Is Pamelas a totaly gluten free facility? Also is Glutino totaly gluten free facility? I have been reading about Udis and it seems like it is all totaly gluten free . I did try a Udi's blueberry muffin and all was fine.

Pamela's and Glutino are both dedicated facilities.

Your gluten-free journey sounds so familiar. When people first try going gluten free, they're so accustomed to having processed foods in their diet, they look for gluten-free versions. It gives them comfort to eat like "they used to." Unfortunately, we continue to crave our old eating patterns, and it's difficult to change that without feeling deprived and bitter. I can honestly say that I was a bitter person for the first two years after being diagnosed with celiac, because I missed some of my favorite foods so very much (donuts, sourdough bread, cereals, croissants, pizza, ravioli, mac and cheese, etc.). However, over time, I lost my taste for these items. Now that there are gluten-free versions of everything I used to eat except croissants, I still rarely purchase them because I simply have very little interest in them anymore. Once you've spent some time eating a diet of unprocessed foods, believe me--you probably won't crave processed foods anymore. They just have a yucky, foreign consistency. So....don't bother to buy those cereals at all. Cook up some eggs or make a soup or salad. When your health is good, everything else seems good, too.

BTW, do you happen to live in Northern California? We have a few support groups around the S.F. Bay Area. Perhaps you can find a support group near you, too (??). Then you wouldn't have to rely on "Netland."
